Why was the Nile integral to the unification of Egypt? What is the mystery surrounding Queen Hetepheres' tomb? What did the Armana Letters reveal? What did the ancient Egyptians eat and drink? 30-Second Ancient Egypt presents a unique insight into one of the most brilliant and beguiling civilizations, where technological innovations and architectural wonders emerge among mysterious gods and burial rites. Each entry is summarized in just 30 seconds-using nothing more than two pages, 300 words, and a single picture. From royal dynasties and Tutankhamun's tomb, to hieroglyphs and mummification, interspersed with biographies of Egypt's most intriguing rulers, this is the quickest path to understanding the 50 key ideas and innovations that developed and defined one of the world's great civilizations.
